The guy running the rabbit had to pay attention as a race would really get screwed up if they just about caught it.

He was also a little awkward & running out of the 2 box. So I bet him & the dog with early foot in a Quinella figuring that when they hit the 1st turn the RR son would overrun & take out the field but the Early foot dog would be beyond the turn. It happened that way, but the early foot dog only held to second by a nose. I made some money off the 3rd place dog the rest of the summer, he also was quite an animal. Neat thing about Quinella's was 1 winner a night kept you even, 2 put you in the green.
